Subsidised School Transport Scheme (SSTS)
The Transport for NSW School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) provides eligible school students with free or subsidised travel between home and school.
School travel passes can only be used for approved travel on school days between the student’s home and school/TAFE college between 6.30am and 7pm (6.30am and 9.30pm for TAFE students).

What if your child is not eligible for free travel?
If your child is not eligible for free subsidised travel, alternatives include:
- An SCB Term or Annual Pass
- Paying a bus fare each time you travel
Other Pass Options For School Students
Sapphire Coast Buslines offer two other passes for school students, an Term Travel Pass or Happy Holiday Pass.
A Term or Annual Travel Pass is an option for students that:
- Live too close to the school to qualify for free travel
- Participate in after-school activities (sport/work)
- Travel to a different destination other than their home address on a regular basis
The cost of a term pass is $50 per term or $180 per year. This entitles you to limitless bus travel on any bus during the school term Monday to Friday. Not for use on weekends or during the school holidays. You can purchase online, obtain a form from the driver or download, or call our office and pay over the phone.
Happy Holiday Travel Pass
If you need to travel on our passenger buses during the school holidays you can purchase a pass for unlimited travel for only $25.00. This is available to all Primary and Secondary students from any state.
